Week 90 - 4 June 2012 New Companion
Olá! So I’ve got a bunch of cool new things that happened this week to tell you guys! On Tuesday, we had two baptisms. One baptism was the little boy I mentioned last week. The service was packed (which is very unusual), and it was a super spiritual experience. Even though it was suuuper hot due to the amount of people there, the spirit was still really strong. Everyone cried like crazy because G. was finally being baptized. Even he couldn't stop crying. As for the other baptism, he is a really good man, but has trouble understanding things. In the end we all prayed about it, and he was baptized. It all went smoothly. But the coooolest thing happened with him at church on Sunday. He went to church for the first time with a nice pair of pants. After he received the Holy Ghost, he went up to the front to bear his testimony for fast and testimony meeting. He bore one of the most simple and strongest testimonies I've heard from a brand new convert. He said everything right and even ended his testimony perfectly. That probably doesn't sound like such a big deal, but man it was to me. It made me so happy inside and so glad to have continued teaching him.
Also, on Wednesday, we had a Talent Show in the ward. We’ve been planning it for about a month now, and it actually turned out super well! The members loved it, and the performances were sweet! Even Elder C. and I played the song “Wonderwall” on the guitar. Haha I played the guitar, and we sang. We didn’t practice much, but it was fun playing guitar again for the first time in two years haha.
As for the situation here, Elder C’s parents came and picked him up on Saturday. I met them and everything too. Haha it was cool. And now my new comp is Elder L. until the end of the transfer (next week). He’s from
and only has one month on the mission. He doesn’t speak much Portuguese, so it’s pretty hard to understand him haha. But it’s nice cuz I get to learn Spanish with him too! He’s really cool, but he has difficulties. I’m trying to help him a lot, but I don’t know what more I can do. I’ll only be with him one more week, but I’ll try my best. He even calls me his "Dad" here on the mission since I’m training him too haha. Paraguay
Oh, and today we had a zone service project/activity at a member’s house today. There was a barbeque and everything. It was actually pretty fun haha. Well, my time is up.
Love you guys!
